USA: Plugged in: Ann Arbor now ready to welcome electric vehicles with new charging stations downtown

Are you ready for an electric car? Ann Arbor officials now say they’re at least ready for you to venture downtown and plug in.

With the help of the local Clean Energy Coalition, city officials are celebrating the installation of 18 electric vehicle charging stations at six parking locations downtown.
The charging stations now in place can be accessed by the public free of charge. Electric vehicle owners need only pay the usual parking fees.

The Fourth and William parking structure is among the locations where new electric vehicle charging stations have been installed in downtown Ann Arbor.

With electric vehicles becoming increasingly common, the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority was able to secure federal grant funding through the Clean Energy Coalition from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Recovery Act program.
Leaders from the city, DDA, Clean Energy Coalition and Ecology Center are planning to celebrate the new stations at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Forest Avenue parking structure.
The charging stations, manufactured by a California-based company called ClipperCreek, are located at the Forest Avenue, Maynard, Fourth and William, Ann and Ashley, and Fourth and Catherine parking facilities, as well as the new Library Lane underground parking structure that opens July 12.
Interest in electric vehicles is growing rapidly, city officials say, but one of the largest concerns is the ability to charge them.
